What a great way to start off a Monday!
I just saw that one of my favourite Canadian singers, Dan Mangan is going to be doing some shows in Western Canada.. He’ll be in Australia for the next couple of weeks (poor guy), but when he gets back, you should definitely check him out.
I hadn’t heard of the singer/songwriter until I heard him on CBC’s The Q, and I’ve sorta been obsessed ever since. Okay, maybe obsessed is a little excessive, but I have already decided that I want his song Basket, to be played at my funeral. It is a really beautiful, and I want my family to really sad about me dying. Like really really sad.
If you get a chance to see Mangan live, please do so. This will be my first time and I couldn’t more excited.
Here are some of the dates:
Feb 3. Canmore, AB The Communitea Cafe
Feb 5. Edmonton, AB The Haven Social Club
Feb 6. Calgary, AB SAIT (The Gateway)
Feb 7. Kelowna, BC The Habitat
